this is a really cool game! the effect of the randomised room/descriptions was really effective, created that dreamlike sense of familiar chaos. i got a few different endings and it seems like they all involve the player's sister/ mother, which i think is really interesting. i love that you kind of get a sense of who the player is through their dreams. great job :D
An entry for LSDJAM 2020
Inspired by the legendary PS1 game LSD: Dream Emulator - as is everything else in this jam - DMTREM presents a constantly shifting and changing dreamworld purely through text. A small explorable map is combined with randomized room and object descriptions to create a fragmented and nonsensical experience. In a similar manner to the original, it's all based on things my own subconscious has thrown at me while I've been trying to get some sleep.
I don't think there's anything in this game that might upset anyone, but it does strive to create a feeling of general anxiety - because that's what lots of my own dreams are like. Thanks, Brain.
This is a beta release which has everything mostly implemented, but there's bound to be typos and mistakes in the text. Additional dream locations may be added at a later date, with the emphasis on "may". The fixing of bugs and typos are more likely.

i like this for its randomness' witch it makes it kind of funny in a way
This is really interesting and your descriptions are vivid! I can feel the immersion as I read the texts.
sorry is good game ;)
I'm sorry you didn't like this. I would say it's sort of like a walking simulator in that you're moving about from location to location for most of it, like a parser driven adventure. It'd be more obvious if the player had to actually type in directions like those games, I guess, and if it were all just room descriptions. Hopefully other entries in this jam will be more up your street.
This is absolutely great. I love the descriptions. Would love to see it grow. I wonder if those AI generators could do something like that...
